Tempura is an incredibly popular deep-fried dish in Japan. Typically, tempura consists of a variety of vegetables and seafood dipped into a light batter, and then fried to satisfying crispy perfection. Sometimes you can get meat tempura, but ebi (shrimp) tempura is an absolute classic that you simply have to try when visiting Tokyo. Tempura is versatile as a side or a main dish. For example, it can be served over a bowl of soba buckwheat noodles (called tempura soba) or cooked in sauce and placed on top of a rice bowl (known as tempura donburi or tendon). Whichever way you have it, it’s crunchy and tasty, especially when different ingredients are used for delicious variation! Learn how to make your own authentic Japanese tempura during this Tempura in Tokyo Cooking Class, where you’ll prepare the ingredients, mix the batter, and fry your tempura pieces. You’ll also make miso soup from scratch, as well as a vegetable side dish to go with it. Finally, sit down to your tempura feast with complimentary tea or coffee and dessert!
